This guy is drawing the bikes of the future and we like what we see
Working under the name of Local Bike Chop, industrial designer Daniel Gunnarsson has been drawing what he thinks the bikes of the future may look like, and if they’re anything close to this, we’re excited for what may be around the corner.
Daniel has reworked the frame such that it retains pretty much the same wheelbase despite the giant wheels, giving the bike a wildly slack seat angle. He’s also taken cues from the likes of the Canyon Grail and Look, with a neatly integrated bar/stem combo up front.
Daniel goes on to admit that the wheels are probably totally inappropriate for this sort of bike, but that doesn’t stop it from being a fascinating concept.
